visit us on facebook. hello, everybody, i'm beth troutman. we're going to look at great videos and tell you the stories behind them right this minute. new video surface of a cruise ship hammered by hurricane sandy. this is a shot of the gift shop. hear why passengers said it felt more like the poseidon. >> everything that wasn't attached, broke. >> an air traveler with a certain item told that's too much carry-on. a story for anyone who ever had to check a bag. cops say a guy tries to scam

gas and catches fire. >> he was all burnt up. >> how the alleged plan backfired big time. plus, the friday buzz word for your chance at a new ipad and the story behind an edible strategy. >> they blew the cake up. >> if you're in the room, do you go like -- try to catch it? for the past few days we've been seeing the destruction and devastation as hurricane sandy made landfall, but what about the destruction at sea? take a look at this video shot by dr. david evan on a caribbean cruise. >> it was a brand new disney ship, the disney fantasy. >> the pool deck area was completely flooded. this is a shot of the gift shop. >> the ship began to lift from left to right so dramatically, the sliding doors to our bedroom began to suddenly slam. >> he even said his wife was in
9:02am
tears. >> saying, we got to call our boys, you know? >> this happened on october 25th and 26th. here's another video that a passenger posted from disney fantasy. look at this cell phone footage. you can see the water swashing too and fro with the motion of the ship. did they say they warned them, the storm is coming, put on your life vests and go to your rooms? the passengers did tell the passengers stay in your cabin. >> yes, stay in your cabins. >> go to your room, but even in your room you don't necessarily feel safe. we did reach out to disney about this incident, and they said the safety of our guests and crew is the high. given this was a difficult evening for our guests, we have provided them with a choice of a future cruise discount or discount at a walt disney world
9:03am
resort. this is the really short dash cam video from a police cruiser in wisconsin. he turns a corner on a very dark street. ended up causing a major power outage. and the street lights aren't working. look at what happens here. >> whoa! what the heck was that guy, just dangling in the middle of the road? >> out of nowhere, a pedestrian walking on the road was struck by the cruiser. he was dressed in all black in the middle of a power outage. >> wasn't even moving fast, just slowly moping around. >> that could probably be because the pedestrian was an 89-year-old man and there's very little time from the point where we actually see him in the video to the point of impact. unfortunately, as of yesterday, this man is in critical condition, so we don't know what he was doing on the road, but
9:04am
after an initial investigation, the sheriff's department determined that this officer was going 24 miles an hour in a 25 mile an hour zone. this officer was on the way to the humane society to drop off a dog. it was an unfortunate accident. the officer was immediately tested for drugs or alcohol and he passed that test. no charges are going to be filed. ryanair is a low-budget european airline, and some spanish travelers are calling for people to boycott it because of this incident caught on video. this woman talking was getting on the plane and ryanair said she had to get off. they called police to remove her from the plane because they said she had excess baggage. what do you see in her hand? >> jacket, book, one small bag?
9:05am
>> she also has a control. she said it won't fit in my suitcase. they called police to remove her from the plane. see the officer stepping out. >> there they go, dragging her out of there. >> really charged her full price for that? >> i don't know why it couldn't fit in the overhead bin, but if you want to be technical, she had the control and the bag. other passengers said they'll put her stuff in our bag. the woman had become disruptive and that's why the authorities were called in. gate agents also said she didn't show her i.d. there you go. if she was disruptive, she becomes a security risk. the people on the plane, when they hauled her out, they had something to say about it. they were ashamed by how the police hauled her off the plane. if she handled it better at the

9:07am
according to police, the person in the car was not injured, but extremely lucky and they put this video out there to use it as an example to stay home when there are dangerous driving conditions due to weather. if you look close, almost looks like the power lines might have saved this person. the tree gets caught up, that is what slows it down. let's shoot over to wilmington, north carolina. what do you see there? clear red light. person in the video didn't see that, boom, huge three-car pileup. this is the wilmington entrance to the bridge. a honda landed on the roof and emergency crews had to direct traffic and the bridge was shut down for about an hour. one person was taken to the hospital with minor injuries, but, of course, messed up traveling for lots of other people. look, the suv gets hit by the truck. that's the honda civic.
